My mother implored me to wash my face every night, and only now that I’m married do I understand why. For the man who wants to look his best the next morning, try this concentrated foaming gel cleanser at night, after the gym, or before a shave to remove oil, grime and dead surface skin. (The ladies call this exfoliating
). From Vermont-based Ursa Major Men, this face wash is 99.5% natural, 51% organic and free of unhealthy synthetic ingredients that are part and parcel of what you might be using now to clean your face. Ursa Major Men sources their ingredients whenever possible from family-owned, sustainable growers.
How Long Will It Last?
This is a rich, concentrated formula with no "filler" ingredients. The 8 oz size should last at least 3-6 months with daily use.
What Does the Smell Remind Us Of?
We smell spearmint with a good dose of cedar and lime. The good folks at Ursa Major describe their face wash as a “divine blend” of premium, whole essential oils including cedar, spearmint, lime, lemon, rosemary, black spruce, owyhee, vetiver and lavender. “Face wash has never smelled so good,” and having tried it ourselves, we heartily agree.
How Should A Man Use This Facewash?
Wet face and hands with warm water. Pour quarter-size dose into palm of hand and use both hands to activate formula. Massage thoroughly over face, neck and around ears… enjoy. Leave on for 30-60 seconds for an extra hit of exfoliation. Rinse well. Use morning and night, and after exercise if you’re so inclined, for clear, healthy skin.
